Overview

The TetherBlock® locks your tethered cable into place, keeping your cable or cord plugged in and your camera’s sensitive data port protected from damage.

If you have an Arca-style ball head, please refer to the TetherBlock Arca.

Key Features:

  • Keeps tether cables connected and secured to camera
  • Protects expensive camera ports from damage
  • Lightweight and extremely durable
  • Multiple routing channels accept thick, medium or thin cables
  • Rubber non-slip pads keep the TetherBlock from moving once attached to the camera
  • Additional 1/4-20″ female threads allow mounting non Arca-compatible tripod plates

Camera data ports are fragile and expensive to repair. When shooting tethered in studio or on location, a trip or tug can cause your tether cable to become dislodged or cause serious damage to your camera’s data ports. The TetherBlock is a must-have for photographers shooting tethered both handheld or using a tripod.

The TetherBlock is designed to prevent accidental removal of a cable from your camera’s data ports by snaking a USB, FireWire, or HDMI cable through one of TetherBlock’s three channels. A 1/4″-20 slotted screw attaches the plate to the camera, and can be tightened with a screwdriver or coin.

From there, either shoot handheld or attach the TetherBlock to your camera’s tripod mount and you’ll be able to shoot tethered to a computer without fear of your tethered cable becoming unplugged.

Easy to mount, the TetherBlock has a 1/4″-20 male thread to attach directly to the bottom of your camera.

TetherBlock

The bottom of the TetherBlock features both a 1/4″-20 and a 3/8″ female tripod thread, allowing it to be mounted directly onto a tripod plate or head. If you are mating it with your tripod plate, you will be able to center your plate on the TetherBlock giving you a secure connection.
